I finally picked up the Essential Guide To Alien Species. I've read most of the books, except NJO (only read Vector Prime) so far, but it's been soooooo long since I've read them, I don't recall in what books the species appear. I wish the book told where the species made its first appearance. Maybe some of you guys could help out. Here's a list, which book did these aliens appear in:
Anzati (I know they were in the Star Wars comic, but were they in a novel?)
Barabel
Codru-Ji
Coway
Drovian
Elomin
Firrerreo
H'nemthe
**'Din
Jenet
Khommite
Kurtzen
Lorrdian
Massassi (Jedi Search?)
Melodie
Mimbanite
Myneyrsh
Phindian
Pho Ph'eahian
Pydyrian
Rishii
Selonian
Shi'ido (one of the ugliest and dumbest looking creatures)
Sluissi
Ssi-ruu
Taurill
Togorian
Toka (Sharu)
Trianii
Verpine
Vor
Yaka
Yevetha
Zeltron
Any help would be appreciated:D

There was an Anzati Dark Jedi in I, Jedi. Can't think of most of the others right now.

Ssi-ruuk were in Truce at Bakura, there was Barabel in one of the Thrawn Trilogy books, there was Verpine in Vision of the Future and Massassi were a species on Yavin 4, enslaved by Exar Kun, they're mentioned a few times in the Jedi Academy Trilogy. Most of the others sound familiar, but I can't think of specific books they appear in.

Elomin - Their back story was in the Thrawn trilogy. Palpatine enslaved them to build weapons for the Empire. (Last Command)
Selonian - The Corellian Trilogy (Ambush at Corellia)
Trianii - Han Solo at Stars' End
